    Wait this doesn’t make sense. A Bo3 match means I need to only win 2 games… but we have to bring 5 decks? Usually with Bo3, you only have to bring 3 decks, with one getting banned…. Can someone please clarify.

    Hey there Francois,
    We are using 5 decks for the first tournament as we were recommended it by our adviser.

    Please note that we will be using best of 5 for the semi-final and grand final.

    We will review the tournament to see if we should change it for future tournaments.

    For now we will be sticking to selecting 5 decks, where the opposition can ban one.

    Thanks so much for your feedback, we will be looking into using only 3 decks for future best of 3 tournaments.
